    I'm worried about Computer Training College


    Hi everybody!

    I am CTC since december 2007 in a Web-Design Course CIW, and I’m starting to worry. I’ve paid over £2000. So far I’ve only received 2 books. Between the 2 assessments it took them more than a month to send me the next book. I’ve called them twice they always say I’ll receive it within a week and NOTHING!
    Anyone can give me advice or if they went to court, because I’m starting to think about it to get my money back. My mom paid me that course and I feel very bad. I've got a very bad feeling about CTC and l like to stop before I loosing more time...

    I'd really want to know if anyone won in court and got their money back even partially. Thank you for helping me.

    If you took out a CDL, or paid with credit card then you are covered by the consumer credit act, which states that you have the right to sue, not only the company, but also the credit company (in case of the seller going bust)

    Get together a list of grievances and how they have breached the contract, and take them to the CAB, they will advise.

    This site also has a lot of info on the laws regading consumerism and your rights.

    Might be worth posting there

    This surely is another reason to go the self study route

    Yep. You'll always have the books you need, you take the exams when you think you're ready, and you certainly won't have the ability to screw yourself over on class fees! :)

    I have been talking to someone today and they are required to do three exams at their training provider:blink to get the A+. I have no idea why :blink

    Its probably so they can screw more money out of their students.

    Hello!

    Thank you all for your advice, I'll go tomorow to the nearest CAB to get advise.

    I'll keep you upgraded of the process.

    What worries me thought it's that so far they just been very slow at giving me my next courses, those manuals are not uptated and the communication between me and CTC is far to be good. But can I get my money back on that statements? I know by the way CTC acts that things are going to be worse and that probably the support and the knowledge I was seeking when I've signed for the course is not gonna be there.

    Anyway I'll let you know how things are going, but again if anyone is this king of situation I'd like to hear from them.

    I did 3 courses to get onto A+. NCFE. I see what your saying but to my mind it put everyone into a level playing field and it wasn't as if nothing was learnt.

    On saying that, all courses were at a local college and not an online training course.

    @ babycatface I would at least see what your local colleges offer before going down the internet route.
